Artistic exchange and cultural translation in the Italian renaissance city by Stephen J Campbell( Book )

9 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 437 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book considers the reception of the early modern cultures of Florence, Rome, and Venice in other centers of the Italic peninsula, such as Ferrara, Bologna, Ancona, San Gimignano, and Pistoia, which had flourishing local cultures of their own. Offering a perspective that focuses on dialogue and exchange among various urban centers and cultural groups, it also involves a reexamination of the Renaissance itself as a form of translation of a past culture, one that attempted to assimilate the lost or fragmentary world of the Roman emperors, the Greek Platonists, and the ancient Egyptians. Collectively the essays examine how the processes of cultural self-definition varied among the Italian urban centers in the early modern period, well before the formation of a distinct Italian national identity. Exploring how artistic forms made the transition from one Italian city to another, the contributors also focus attention on the subtle modification of practice that local conditions and priorities required."--Jacket
The Cambridge Companion to Boccaccio( Book )

8 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 282 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is designed for multiple audiences: those who are coming to Boccaccio for the first time, or who may have only a passing acquaintance with his work, those studying his texts as undergraduate or postgraduate students, and those scholars interested in the production and reception of Boccaccio's works from the medieval to the modern day. Although our Companion is relatively simple in form - a collection of short chapters which each take on key aspects of Boccaccio's life and works - we hope to give a sense of the complex interrelation between his texts, the social and literary contexts which conditioned their composition, and their subsequent reception in the centuries since. Boccaccio was a writer who mastered all the medieval language arts and showed a keen interest in literary theory and the interpretation of texts. Equally at home writing poetry, prose, and letters, he also produced commentaries on classical and vernacular texts, wrote encyclopaedic collections of mythological and historical biographies, and avidly collected classical, patristic, and contemporary writings in his own autograph notebooks"--
At the margins : minority groups in premodern Italy( Book )

7 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 250 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Slaves, foundlings, prostitutes, nuns, homosexuals, exiles, and the elderly - such groups stood at the margins of society in premodern Italy. Examining these minorities, this text explores identity as a process rather than a fixed entity, stressing the multiplicity to which individuals belonged
The erotics of consolation : desire and distance in the late Middle Ages by Catherine Léglu( Book )

6 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 229 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What is consolation and why is mourning so often bound up with erotic desire? This collection of essays explores consolation and mourning in the varied, sometimes provocative, readings of Boethius and of Stoic consolation by French, English, Italian and German authors, including Dante, Petrarch, Boccaccio, Machaut, Chaucer, Wyatt and Queen Elizabeth I. The contributors consider how they remodeled the discourse of consolation through parody and satire, interrogating the limits of a consolatory rhetoric."--Jacket
